COVID-19 Delta Variant
The war against the Coronavirus has changed. The highly contagious and more virulent Delta variant is hitting Colorado’s unvaccinated population hard, and faster than the original strain that we fought last fall. In other words, this variant spreads faster and makes those infected sicker than the original virus. According to charts from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), we may very well be on the precipice of the fifth wave of infection in Colorado since March 2020. State epidemiologist Dr. Rachel Herlihy says that since July 1, 80% of documented COVID-19 cases, 87% of hospitalizations, and 92% of deaths have involved unvaccinated or only partially vaccinated individuals. It is true that some of those infected with the delta variant have been fully vaccinated but at much lower rates. In this current surge, Colorado is seeing a daily rate of new infections of about 3 per 100,000 people compared to a rate in unvaccinated people of 17 per 100,000.
